Try to find the power box under the hood and see if you filled it with water. it is a black box that has all your relays and fuses in it for your car.. Under the lid of that box is the location of the windows and or antenna relay look this over and check all fuses in that box to see if that is the problem .. thanks Jerry holler if you need more.

How to fix check engine light 90 skylark 2.5 engine ?

If u know of someone who has an old scanner u can easily access the codes. Otherwise u need to jump pins a and b in the doc together with the ignition.on but the motor not running. The check engine light will flash codes. Long flashes are r tens and fast flashes r ones. It will start with 12. One long and then 2 fast. This will sequence 3 times and then go on to more codes. Once u have the codes u can look them up to get to the correct failure area. U may still need a pro to diagnosis it further but u will have a clue to the affected failure. Fyi the 12 is just a distributor code that will show up
since the engine is not running. This is a normal code and should be ignored.

What does if mean when battery saver is activated on 2004 Cadillac cts

Generally it means you are drawing more power than the alternator is putting out, or if the engine is off the stereo or some other accessory is drawing power. The battery saver is warning you that you have just enough power left to start the engine. Could also mean you have a bad battery connection or your alternator is not putting out over 13 volts. If the engine is idling with air conditioning and stereo on for any length of time it could also trigger this warning as the alternator at idle speed may be unable to keep the battery at full.

Tring to find out which color wire is for the ignition switch so i canhook up my stereo

You will want two of them, one is constant power, and can come from the battery if needed, and the other will be accessory power. It'll be the one that only gets power when your key is in and not in the "lock" position. You can actually hook both the stereo's wires to the constant power, but then you'll need to shut the stereo off manually, it won't go on and off with the car.
